Coaching Candidate: Dan Quinn

Coaching Candidate: Dan Quinn

Submitted by EGD on September 29th, 2014 at 8:08 PM

Okay, here is my contribution...

Dan Quinn is currently the defensive coordinator for Pete Carroll and the defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks.  He’s known for being flexible with scheme and looking for ways to feature the talents of his best players.   Interestingly, in a 2013 article on, Quinn and two other NFL assistants (Mel Tucker and Greg Roman) were named by anonymous NFL executives as being the most likely NFL assistants to make great college coaches. 

PROBLEM IS... Quinn is one of the most highly-regarded assistants in the NFL right now, and was apparently a top candidate for the Cleveland Browns job last off-season (but the Browns hired a different coach while the Seahawks were still playing en route to the Super Bowl).  He was also a finalist for the Minnesota Vikings job and reportedly considered for other NFL vacancies as well.  


Age: 44

From: Morristown, N.J.

College: Salisbury Steak, er, State (1993)

Coaching record:


William & Mary (DL)
Virginia Military Institute (DL)
Hofstra University (DL)

Miami Dolphins (DL)
New York Jets (DL)
Seattle Seahawks (AHC/DL)
Seattle Seahawks (DL)

Other coaches he has worked for/with include:

·         Nick Saban (with Miami Dolphins)

·         Pete Carroll (with Seattle Seahawks)

·         Will Muschamp (with Florida Gators)


·         Recent major college experience as DC with Florida

·         Super Bowl ring

·         May be difficult to sign (or keep for long), given demand from NFL teams

Once again, not exactly the finest PR day for Michigan.

Don't click.  You know what I mean when I say don't click.  (Trey's naked selfies are now everywhere on Twitter.)

Damnit, this is the worst Michigan day ever.

2015 4* SG Matt McQuaid Commits to MSU

2015 4* SG Matt McQuaid Commits to MSU

Submitted by ypsituckyboy on September 25th, 2014 at 9:20 AM

Rated as the #71 player in the country to Rivals. Should make for some fun storylines over the next few years since McQuaid was being recruited pretty heavily by Michigan for a while. There seemed to be significant mutual interest, however, Beilein cooled on him for some reason (before Duncan Robinson was on the radar) and other schools, including MSU, came into the picture. McQuaid had previously decommitted from SMU.

McQuaid's dad, Rob, grew up in Midland and played ball at CMU, so the family has strong Michigan ties.
